MANAGER Stan Ternent is continuing his search for signings – but Tony Grant will not be one of them.
The 33-year-old midfielder, who was released by Chester at the end of last season, has been on trial with Town for two weeks but will not be offered a contract.
His only appearance was in the 1-0 defeat by Hartlepool on Sunday, when he was taken off after 67 minutes, and he was not included in yesterday’s behind-closed-doors practice match against Accrington Stanley.
“I have had a look at Tony but I won’t be taking it any further,” explained the manager, preparing for Saturday’s visit of Sheffield United to the Galpharm (Noon).
“David Unsworth played at left-back yesterday and he looks in good shape, while Paul Gerrard took over in goal for the second half, so I’ll be making my mind up on those two in the not too distant future.”
On potential targets to join the six players he has already recruited, Ternent explained: “I do have a few inquiries which are pending and we’ll have to see what happens.
“These things don’t happen overnight, unfortunately, but they are ongoing.
“As I’ve said before, though, I do feel I still need to add to the squad in terms of quality and experience and that’s what I’m working towards.”
Fans are reminded the Fantastic Media Stand will be closed on Saturday. Elsewhere it’s £10 adults, £5 seniors and students and £3 juniors.
